Silver Spring, MD & Pawtucket, RI -- Get ready for a Ponyville celebration like no other as My Little Pony: Friendship is Magicthe beloved series created by Hasbro Studios, commemorates its 100th episode milestone. Full of fun surprises, true friendship and music, this special milestone episode airs on Saturday, June 13 at 11:30 AM EDT (10:30 AM CDT), only on Discovery Family Channel -- the smart entertainment choice for families.

This special features a first-time spotlight on several supporting cast characters, as Ponyville’s favorite residents -- Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Rarity -- are busy protecting their community from a surprise attack. Meanwhile, as everyone prepares for Cranky and Matilda’s highly anticipated wedding celebration, an invitation printing error forces last-minute changes, sending Mathilda’s loyal Ponyville pals -- a group of rarely seen and never-before-heard ponies -- scrambling to rearrange everything for the nuptials.

Focusing on teamwork and putting their best hooves forward, the ponies work hard to make Cranky and Matilda’s wedding extra special -- with Octavia and DJ Pon-3 even producing a musical “Wedding Mashup” sure to delight fans. Complete with special guest appearances, the entire Ponyville community will come together in the spirit of everlasting love.

“The My Little Pony brand has taught fans of all ages about the power of friendship for more than 30 years through socially relevant messages of acceptance and kindness,” said Hasbro chief content officer Stephen Davis. “What a great celebration it will be with our 100th episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic -- chock full of special character appearances, great music and lots of story surprises. In the words of Rainbow Dash, it’s going to be ‘Truly Awesome!’”

“100 episodes of any series is a tremendous accomplishment, validating its popularity and pop culture permanence,” said Tom Cosgrove, General Manager of Discovery Family. “Over the years My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has established itself as a series for the entire family with its loveable characters, engrossing storylines and relatable themes. This extra special tribute salutes the series’ amazing cast of both central and supporting ponies, and sets the stage for more exciting surprises to come.”
